ANZACBT is an organisation for people interested in Cognitive and Behavioural psychological therapies including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

ANZACBT was established in 2010 and in that time we have organised a number of successful conferences, workshops, educational events, presentations, as well as consulted to governmental organisations.

One week on from the tragic events in Christchurch, we express our heartfelt aroha and tautoko for our AnzaCBT whānau and our wider communities. This is a time of shock, disbelief, grief, and reflection. Many of us have questions, about ourselves as people, as practitioners, and as a society. Despite fear and division in some spaces, we remain united in our passion and drive to serve others, and to foster hope, aroha and peace for those of all cultures and beliefs. We also unite in recognition of our own needs- for support, understanding, and to hold those we love close. Through the processes of grief, doubt and loss, AnzaCBT walks with each of you. 

“Waiho I te toipoto, kaua I te toiroa.”

Let us keep close together, not far apart.

-The AnzaCBT team.

Te Pou Talking Therapies Toolkit

Te Pou are pleased to announce that they have launched the first four tools from their Let’s get talking toolkit. These tools are designed to support primary and secondary services to deliver effective talking therapies, and help determine which therapies are best for their communities, as well as the skills and knowledge needed for practitioners.

The toolkit supports planning and delivery of talking therapies using a stepped care approach. We invite you to take a look at Te Pou's Let’s get talking: Introduction video which they developed to help people understand more about stepped care in relation to talking therapies.

You can read more about Let’s get talking and access the tools at www.tepou.co.nz/letsgettalking.
